Rutabaga Posted December 16, 2014 Report Share Posted December 16, 2014 This forum automatically switches to a mobile-friendly format when accessed by a smartphone. (I have accessed it both through an iPhone and through a Blackberry.) The mobile version is quite functional and definitely easy to work with on a small screen. However, the default appearance of the mobile version is a white background, not the dark gray used on the full version of the site. There is no problem as long as posters leave their posts in the default text color of the full site -- the mobile version presents this as dark text against a white background. However, if the poster gets fancy and changes the default text color to something that looks nifty against the charcoal gray background -- such as light blue, or yellow, or (worst of all) white -- the mobile version faithfully carries over the text color change, making the post nearly unreadable or, in the case of white text, completely invisible. My question therefore is whether it is possible, in the forum software settings, to suppress the text color changes (in the mobile version only) so that posts with altered text color can be read on a mobile device?
